How to Get Good-Looking Feet?
If you are looking for ways to take care of your feet and make them look sexy, this article is for you.
Here are these tips (the four following tips are recommended by doctors):
Shoeshop in the afternoon : Feet are more swollen at this moment of the day so you will be able to know which shoes you will be at ease in. Regarding shoes, everything is about moderation. Limit time wearing high heels to avoid causing damage to your bones : only wear smart shoes in the office except on special occasions if desired. Your feet are often used with the walking you do every day but if you walk long distances with well-fitted and breathable shoes like flat-soled sneakers, it won’t do any harm to your feet.
Flip – Flops: Wear flip-flops in communal showers but do not wear them all the time.
Socks: Don’t forget to change your socks (they absorb the moisture) and wash your feet daily. Dry them thoroughly : it prevents sweat smell as well as fungal infections that can affect your toenails.
Give your feet a pedicure, ideally a pro-pedicure, every two weeks : soak them 5-10 minutes in a bowl with warm water and exfoliate them with a foot scrub to remove dry skin. Cut toenails carefully with a nail clipper, not too far down (it might cause bleeding) and straight across to prevent ingrown toenails from occurring. Remember to put your cuticles back but do not cut them and moisturize your feet every day, especially on your heels’ skin if they are dry. Use Cetaphil non-irritating moisturizing lotion as it soothes dry skin and can be used on the whole body, including the face.
For very dry heels, you can use a pumice stone : being less dry, your feet will look better in open-back shoes. If your heels stay very dry or cracked after doing this, see a podiatrist for a treatment.
If you want, apply polish to your toenails : firstly, clean the nail plates by wiping them with nail polish remover. Always use a basecoat under your colour to ensure your polish goes on smoothly. Using the nail colour that suit your preference, apply the polish to your toenails. After around 10 minutes, use a topcoat to achieve a long lasting result and a shiny finish.
Go casual for parties or week-ends : wear cool open-toes sandals and toe rings on sunny days to show your glamorous feet ! You could also wear stilettos with an anklet and a dress.
At work, you can wear an anklet if you buy a discreet and sophisticated one that could be part of your work outfit, or buy ankle strap heels.
